Celebrating Black History Month Through the Words of Black Authors

Words are a powerful tool that can help us better understand and empathize with others – and when in written form, words transcend beyond the present, ensuring that the stories and experiences of our ancestors are never forgotten. 

This year, the theme of Black History Month is “The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity,” and what better way to celebrate and amplify Black voices than to immerse yourself in the written words of Black authors – both past and present.

Looking to support Black businesses this month? Here are some Black-owned bookstores, both retail and online, that are based in Florida.
